I run (still makes me chuckle that I can write that and not feel like I am lying!) with the standard ear plugs that come with the iPhone. The only way I can keep them in when I run though is if I run with a hooded top, with the hood up.
This isn't ideal for a number of reasons:
- overheating in the 3 minutes of sun so far this year
- my wife and kids refuse to be seen with me when I wear it
- the other dog walkers on the field tend to give me a wide berth - they see a large, huffing guy with a hood running towards them
I don't know why they don't stay in my ears without the hood up - I don't have too much vertical movement and I do land quite gently. As much as I would love to think it is simply the speed of the wind when I run, I don't think it is that :-).
I don't have huge ears, but I guess they are normal to large. Yeah OK, I used to be called Cauliflower ears as a kid.
So, if any of you have the same issue can you recommend some better headphones (cheaper the better).
I guess I could always try and bring back the headbands from the 80s :-).
